La Toya Jackson

I Didn't LOOT MJ's House

Threatens Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE

La Toya Jackson insists ... she did not raid Michael Jackson's home just hours after his death, pillaging plastic bags filled with cash -- and now, she's threatening to sue a major magazine for saying otherwise.

La Toya has fired off a cease-and-desist letter to Vanity Fair, claiming its recent article entitled "Estate of Siege" is "replete with misstatements of fact, false innuendos, and defamatory insinuations."

According to La Toya's letter, the article falsely claims she showed up at MJ's Carolwood mansion shortly after his death and loaded plastic bags filled with cash into a duffel bag. The VF article goes on to describe La Toya's bf leaving the home in a moving van.

La Toya claims the article describes her visit as a "mad scramble for money" -- strongly insinuating she stole large sums of cash from MJ's house.

According to La Toya ... the allegations are nothing but lies and she wants a full retraction asap.

If Vanity Fair doesn't oblige, La Toya says she'll sue.

Who took the hard drives with hours and hours of unreleased material? I heard that was LaToya. Will all that music be lost forever?

So why didn't she do or say anything back then?


Maybe she went thru the monet already.


I think she pilfered something. It was just too fast after his death that she was seen with the bags.

All the Jackson's do now is write bs books about Michael trying to make anymore money they can off him. No wonder he distanced himself from them.

Well,now we know why LaToya didn't sign the letter to the executors of Michael's estate. She already took her "inheritance".
